Up, up, and away! The house and the rates.
So as of Friday the framing is done, the roof is on, most of the windows and exterior doors are in, and plumbing has started. These things make me happy! I am meeting with Guardian in the morning to go over placement of things and I really hope that we can have our pre drywall meeting before the end of the week because not only is the house going up quick, but so are the interest rates!! It makes my stomach turn just thinking about how much it has went up since we originally signed our contract. The rise in interest rates has already made our mortgage payment go up by about 2 hundred per month, and frankly we can't handle anymore- I emailed our PM last week to ask about the estimated closing date which was November 1st and he said that closing would be pushed out but should happen sometime within the first half of the month. I'm not really worried about the delay too much because it isn't that long (even though it stinks a little) but if things would've been on schedule for Nov. 1st then we could've locked in our rate last week. I'm going to shoot another email to our PM and stress how important it is that we have our pre drywall meeting ASAP so that we can lock in an interest rate. I really want things to go smoothly because my family is really looking forward to this home and I would hate to have stupid interest rates be the down fall of all of this.....Anyways, here are a few pics...
